Abstract [en]

The aim of the study was to evaluate the risks of arsenic (As) spreading from soil that was used in a landfill cover. The As-contaminated soil was treated with iron, and a combination of iron and peat and placed in a pilot-scale landfill cover. The main exposure pathways concerning risks to human health and the environment were studied by analysing dissolved As in soil pore water, As phytotoxicity and bioaccessibility. The results showed that the stabilization of As-contaminated soil with a combination of Fe0and peat signifi-cantly reduced the As concentration in soil pore water, uptake by plants and improved the main morphological parameters of plants. The soil treatment also reduced the bioaccessibility As indicating the reduced risks to human health. Using Fe0amendment alone, the positive impact on the measured indicators was considerably smaller or not significant
